HOUSE MICE

The house mouse is the most common rodent in the United States. It is usually when the weather is colder that mice begin venturing indoors to seek warmth and shelter. The average house mouse is about two inches long if you don’t count their hairless tail. House mice are usually varying shades of brown, have four legs, large ears and whiskers. House mice are notorious for multiplying at alarming rates that can very quickly get out of control. House mice found in the house should be controlled immediately as they can multiply quickly, contaminate foods with their droppings and urine and can transmit diseases. Thankfully, ABET has all the professional tools and products to successfully eliminate your house mouse problem.

 

 


NORWAY RATS

Norway rats are also known as sewer rats and are large, burrowing rodents larger than another common rat known as the roof rat. They are generally bulky in size and are covered with shaggy brown to grey colored fur with gray to grayish brown underbellies. Norway rats weigh between 7 to 18 ounces and reach lengths of about 16 inches – their tails alone may measure more than 8 inches. These rats can be a particularly major pest to have in the home as they are insatiable eaters who will gnaw non-stop which can cause significant damage to structures. These rats are also known to spread troubling diseases such as plague, jaundice, rat-bite fever, cowpox virus, trichinosis and salmonellosis. In addition, Norway rats can contaminate food and introduce fleas into a home. Norway rats also can create large litters which can get very out of control if there is no intervention. Thankfully, ABET has all the professional tools and products to successfully eliminate your Norway rat problem.


ROOF RATS

Roof rats- also known as attic, citrus, or black rats- are rodents that are slightly smaller than their cousin, the Norway rat. The roof rat is usually dark brown to black in color and measures 13 to 18 inches in length including tail. They weigh between five to nine ounces, are slender, and their ears are large and nearly hairless. Roof rats derive their name from the fact that they are natural climbers and like to nest in attics, roofs and upper parts of buildings. Roof rats are chronic gnawers and are known to be carriers of disease such as plague, jaundice, rat-bite fever, cowpox virus, trichinosis and salmonellosis. Thankfully, ABET has all the professional tools and products to successfully eliminate your roof rat problem.

 

 


DEER MICE

Deer mice are typically a wilder mouse, found in rural areas and in woodlands. Deer mice are a deceptively cute little rodent with its big eyes and ears. The deer mouse is similar in size to house mice, but they can be easily distinguished from the deer mice by their unique two-colored tail and body. The upper body is gray to reddish brown while its underbelly and legs are white. The deer mouse is a pest of particular concern because of it is a well-known carrier of Hantavirus, which has caused numerous deaths in the United States. Deer mice have been known to get into grain and other stored foods and have contaminated them with their fluids and feces. Thankfully, ABET has all the professional tools and products to successfully eliminate your deer mouse problem.

ABET inspections was able to work around my schedule, which was awesome! I work out of town a lot and was only available on the weekends. They scheduled me on a time that they normally don’t conduct business, and I was able to get a thorough and professional inspection. Austin Messina was in, on, and around every nook and cranny of my soon to be home. He was able to point out miner details that I would have not been able to catch. Yes, I would certainly recommend ABET to friends and family. A special thanks to Katie for making my appointment happen in a resiculously timely manner.
